WE BEG TO ANNOUNCE OUR REMOVAL to No.
to No. 132 VICTORIA St., where we shall be pleased to meet our old customers and friends,
and to greet any others interested in our line of business, When we moved to our late place of business, 128 Wellington St., we be-lieved that we had room and facilities sufficient to accommodate us for many years to come, but we are pleased to announce that our business has increased to such an extent during the past two years that we are compelled to seek larger and more commodious quarters. Hence our removal to our present location, where we have four times as much room as before, and where we believe we shall be able to give our customers even better service than formerly.
It is, perhaps, with pardonable pride that we make the above announce.ment, as we can only attribute our growing success to the superior merit of our goods and our constant aim to please those with whom we have business relations.
We are yours very truly,

The last issue of the Western Druggist contains an editorial article on the misuse of the word base for vehicle in connection with ointments, the writer taking the correct ground that lard, or petrolatum. etc., is a vehicle, not a base as so many writers claim. American writers of eminence as a rule adhere to the use of the word vehicle, but we note that Proctor in his “ Lectures on Practical Pharmacy” and Cripps in “Galenic Pharmacy” both use the term “ointment base"; the B. P. also in the monograph on paraffin ointment uses the word “basis. " We think it would be just as correct to say that 60 per cent alcohol is the basis of tincture of calumba, as to say that benzoated lard is the basis of cantharides ointment. The cases are exactly similar, but we do not think that any would have the hardihood to say that the first is correct, and if not, why not apply the same rule to ointments?
